A Feeling Is a Feeling Is a Feeling
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Nan Forehand

a feeling is a feeling is a feeling

sometimes a feeling isn't so appealing
at the time, the feeling may be rather intense
on second thought, complete and utter nonsense
a feeling may frighten
while another may brighten
one may bring about a headache or heartburn
not to mention, make the stomach churn
not dealing with a feeling; worse yet,  to avoid
can be as dangerous as taking an anabolic steroid
a feeling doesn't have to be justified
in order to be bona fide
it need not bring about guilt or shame
when in doubt, call upon the Father's name
a spiritual approach is a good start
to revive a  burdened and contrite heart

Isaiah 57:15-16
For this is what the high and lofty One says---
he who lives forever, whose name is holy:
"I live in a high and holy place,
but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly
and to revive the heart of the contrite.
I will not accuse forever,
nor will I always be angry,
for then the spirit of man would grow faint before me---
the breath of man that I have created."

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
